Conjugate verb English, Conjugator, Conjugation tables The Acronym Server: find and submit acronyms and meanings The origins of acronyms are a little unclear, but their widespread use in daily life is a relatively modern phenomenon and the result of growing literacy in the 19th and 20th centuries. In more restricted circumstances, however, they have been in use for thousands of years (both the Roman and Hebrew cultures used them). There is a shortage of good articles on the web about the history and development of acronyms: the best is probably at Wikipedia. There is also an unimaginable quantity of garbage put out by the ignorant, some of which is now rightly being exposed as Urban Myth (see example). Both Britain and North America seem to generate an unusual amount of completely spurious and fanciful meanings derived from novelty-hunting, which gain currency in semi-literate circles until they aquire the status of myth, and belief in them is as widespread as it is misplaced. About us In 1991 we moved the service to the web, although the email interface continued in parallel until 1996.

DIVII - English Dictionary Divii - English Video Dictionary has been developed by Subcommune, Inc - an US-based software development company operating from different parts of the world like India, South Korea, and others. The concept of Divii has been developed by Minkyu Koo, CEO and founder of Subcommune, Inc. The sole purpose of Divii is to resolve some of the core problems faced by English learners for a long time like non-availability of proper references and lack of time. The examples of words/phrases are always presented hypothetically, making life more difficult for people wanting to learn English as their second language. Learning English also requires attending classes or going abroad, which often turns out to be a massive expenditure for many people. And most importantly, students hardly have the time to sit with a conventional text dictionary and search word meanings from it. Our Mission The ultimate goal of Divii is not just to restrain itself as a mere dictionary app. About the CEO

DANTE | A lexical database for English Cinema of the United Kingdom The identity of the British industry, and its relationship with Hollywood, has been the subject of debate. The history of film production in Britain has often been affected by attempts to compete with the American industry. The career of the producer Alexander Korda was marked by this objective, the Rank Organisation attempted to do so in the 1940s, and Goldcrest in the 1980s. Numerous British-born directors, including Alfred Hitchcock and Ridley Scott,[14] and performers, such as Charlie Chaplin[15] and Cary Grant, have achieved success primarily through their work in the United States. In 2009 British films grossed around $2 billion worldwide and achieved a market share of around 7% globally and 17% in the United Kingdom.[16] UK box-office takings totalled £1.1 billion in 2012,[17] with 172.5 million admissions.[18] History[edit] Origins and silent films[edit] The first people to build and run a working 35 mm camera in Britain were Robert W. The early sound period[edit] The 1960s[edit]
